**Planetary Pencil Container** I stretched out the [Mini Planetary Container]( https://social.thangs.com/m/53020) to make a pencil container for my kids, which is a remix of the [Original Planetary Container.]( https://social.thangs.com/m/51825) **How it works** This container has three separate compartments, turning the knob on top of the container indexes through the different compartments at a 4:1 ratio. This is done with the use of a planetary gear stage on the bottom of the container. Turning the knob drives the sun gear which causes the carrier to spin which in this case is the inner dividing cylinder. The 4:1 ratio is a result of the planetary gears rotating quicker around the larger 32 tooth ring gear verses the smaller 12 tooth sun gear. **Print instructions** Prints in place, designed for a .4mm nozzle, .2mm layer heights, no supports at 100%. Use a 6mm hex wrench to turn the sun gear, if it’s not free after printing. Don't over torque the knob because the shaft is very long and could fail. Printed with Jessie [Slime Green PLA]( https://www.printedsolid.com/products/jessie-pla-1-75mm-x-1kg-green-slime-glitter) on the [Muldex]( https://github.com/3dprintingworld/MULDEX) rep-rap IDEX printer. ___ **Support and Licensing** If you would like to help support more free models, or get permission to sell physical copies of my models, consider joining my [Patreon]( https://www.patreon.com/3dprintingworld)
